LORY LOCKWOOD BIOGRAPHY RESUME ARCHIVE STATEMENT PRESS
Lory Lockwood is an artist who specializes in automobile and motorcycle fine art that she paints in a style called Photorealism. This contemporary style exudes a power of obsessive detail that focuses on chrome reflections, bright colors and abstract patterns.
Lockwood’s interests range from vintage, exotic and classic autos like Rolls Royce, Bentley, and Mercedes Benz to bikes such as Harley-Davidson, Gilera and custom choppers. Her exquisitely detailed oil paintings are inspired by visits to Daytona Bike Week, Laguna Seca Historic Races and Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Car and motorcycle enthusiasts can also commission a personalized portrait from Lockwood.
The following is a quote from her most recent show:
In "Images of Desire" Lockwood engages the human fascination with objects that represent desire in all of their glory and grandeur. Cars that we covet, motorcycles that we must have, and mannequins that intrigue our psyche all are rendered in exquisite super realistic fashion. Always focusing on the reflective surfaces as her inspiration, Lockwood captures the essence of her machine or mannequin subjects imbuing them with a fascinating personality all their own. Ferraris, Jaguars, Porsches and Ducatis jump off the walls with bright bold colors that reflect these objects of desire that are symbols of American success and riches.
Lockwood’s paintings also explore the mechanics of the mannequin form in the same manner as the vehicles. These beautiful women are depicted in an equally super realist style and are presented in the glitzy, commercial format of their urban settings.
